Solar Panels – As Important for New builds as Bricks and Mortar
With any new build the goal is to make your new home as energy efficient as possible. You want to create a comfortable space that you can enjoy without it costing the earth to run. With the move from fossil fuels to Air Source Heat Pumps, Electric Cars and other smart technologies – all of which require significant amounts of electricity to run – Solar Panels have never made more sense.
Solar Panels generate electricity that reduce your home’s running costs.
Solar Panels can be integrated with most heating system to help reduce your heating or hot water costs
Solar Panels reduce the carbon footprint of your home and improve the energy rating of your property
Solar Panels have the option of being incorporated into the roof finish saving money on other building materials such as slate roof tiles
Solar panels can add value to the property
Given the above, at Solarfix we believe including Solar panels in your build project is as essential as the bricks and mortar. Most items you are putting in your home are a ‘cost’ whereas solar panels are an investment that will actually save you money, perhaps even generate you a small income over time.
What our customers say

Integrated solar panels are a cost-effective solution, ensuring the modules do not detract from the look and feel of your home.
Solar panels can be fitted 'on roof' using specialised brackets and rails attached to roofing beams, so the panels sit on the top of the roofing material.
Ground-mounted panels are ideal for anybody who does not want to include solar PV on their roof and would prefer to have solar on the ground.
